  5. misty Mon, Jun 04 2012 8:45 AM

    I think they need a new jail or a new person in charge.The jail is horrible and yes they are criminals but you know what they still are people too and the inmates havent been using the phone s and the jail wont answer the phone barley ever. The place sucks and people get beat and jumped and you can hear people screaming at the top of there lungs and the guards just stand there and if you need them they wont help you.They need a new system all together and if your fiance is in there they should be able to tell you their information.

  7. Mistystar Hunt Mon, Jun 04 2012 9:30 AM

    This jail is nothing but a joke. Its the worst place you could go.My soon to be husband is in there and i cant talk to him or call they dont answer the calls. I have steady wrote him everyday and he has not recieved a single one of my letters and its bullcrap because they are not allowed to cut off total communication. They still are people and deserve to be treated better then they are. People getting killed,beatin,prob. rapped too,the food is nastey has a horrible taste even mold,the place stinks like rotten bodies n piss n shit.They need a new guy in charge or need to build a new one. Prision is better then they stark county jail.I saw my soon to be husband at his court date an he is yellow and brown looking he looks horrible and hes so skinny his face was sinking in and his red outfit was falling off his body and his ribs stuck out farther then anything. People get charged with neglect and abuse and cruelty when it should be the guards at the jail who get treated like that. Let the guards trade places with the inmates and i bet you the guards couldnt last a week. Karma is a trick and will hit you 10 full and i feels sorry for anybody and everybody with in the jail system who works there. All i know is inmates have the right to use the phone and recieve mail and my husband has had neither people need to stop sitting around and get up and do there job they are supost to and i bet you that the person in charge prob wouldnt last a day with the inmates.The stark county jail system sucks major.

  8. Sara jane Tue, Sep 04 2012 12:01 PM

    The guards are free people.... Not doing illegal events.... Therefor you lose your rights when you enter the prison...why? because you broke the law!!! These post are ridiculous, the guards should trade places with inmates?? No how about the inmates should try and live a normal, ethical, non law breaking life!!!

  12. CC Tue, May 07 2013 9:03 AM

    First of all, none of these posts really help. Sara Jane, you are absolutely obnoxious. This jail is where people go mostly until they are sentenced or their bail is posted. Prison is what you would be referring to, not jail. Learn the system and facts before you misspeak you stupid idiot. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty. I guess you forgot that since you are moron.
